12th grade checklist September - December January - June
Of course, the best time to read and use these checklists is when you are just starting high school. The lists will help you understand the major steps that lie ahead. But, even if you are further along in high school, you will still want to review all of the checklists. Read them over and make sure there aren't any steps you've skipped. There's usually time to correct an oversight and catch up with the process.
Although the checklists are aimed specifically at high school students who are looking for money for college, students already in college (or going back to college, or even going on to graduate school) will find it helpful to read through the lists. Many of the steps suggested don't relate just to high school but should be followed any time you search for colleges and/or financial aid
As you work with these lists, you might think of other important steps that should be added. Let us know about them. If they are of general interests, will add them to the web site.
Now, let's get started in our countdown to college and financial aid.
